Christmas Secrets in Snowflake Cove by Emily Harvale - Book Blitz

Christmas Secrets in Snowflake Cove
Christmas is a time for family and friends, miracles and magic, falling snow and roaring fires, fun, laughter and festive feasts. In Snowflake Cove, it’s also a time for secrets to be revealed…
Evie Starr is hoping for more than a sprinkling of magic this Christmas. The family-run Snowflake Inn is virtually empty and the Starr’s financial future isn’t looking bright. But Evie’s gran, Jessie has a secret that might help.
Enigmatic, Zachary Thorn is every woman’s dream. He’s also ex-SAS, so his secrets are classified. The Christmas Special of his feel-good, TV show is set in Michaelmas Bay – until a phone call means he’s spending Christmas in nearby Snowflake Cove.
Evie’s best friend, Juniper thinks boyfriend Darren has a secret. Evie knows he does. And Evie’s niece, Raven is hiding feelings for Juniper’s brother – who has a secret crush of his own.
But the biggest secret in Snowflake Cove is the identity of Raven’s dad.
With snow falling thick and fast and secrets being revealed one after another, will everyone be snuggling up by the fire on Christmas Eve, or are some secrets best kept hidden…?


Here’s an extract from Christmas Secrets in Snowflake Cove. To give you an idea of what’s going on, Evie Starr’s best friend, Juniper lives with her boyfriend, Darren but Juniper says Darren’s been acting strangely lately, and now Evie has seen him leaving the cottage, with another woman. I can’t say too much without giving away some of the story, but Evie decides she needs to have a ‘friendly’ word with Darren. Enjoy the extract.

‘I’ll give it to Darren all right,’ Evie said, and marched towards the bar where Darren was resting his elbows on the wooden top. He looked as if he needed the support to keep him standing whilst Jessie was busy serving someone else.
‘Sorry, Darren. What can I get you?’ Evie gave him her brightest smile.
Darren returned it with a wan one. ‘A pint of anything, please, Evie. I’m too tired to care.’
‘Yes. Juniper was just telling me that you’ve got a new boss and you’re hard at it from morning till night. What’s she like?’
He gave her an odd look. ‘She’s very focused and can’t abide slackers. It’s the first time I’ve been under a woman and I’m finding it harder than I thought.’
‘Not literally under her, I hope, Darren.’ Evie made it sound like a joke but she held his look when she said it. ‘It’s odd you know, because I could have sworn I saw you this afternoon coming out of your cottage. It was sometime around four, I think. But that couldn’t have been you if you were chained to the desk. Could it? And you wouldn’t have had a woman with you.’ She leant forward as she handed him his beer. ‘Would you, Darren? Because if anyone had seen you they might have got the wrong impression entirely.’
He took the pint and stared at her. He didn’t flinch or bat an eyelid. ‘Would they, Evie? Even if they were sticking their noses in where they shouldn’t? Even if they were adding two and two together and making five? Well then, it’s a good thing everyone knows how much I love Juniper. And it’s a good thing it wasn’t me you saw at four this afternoon. Isn’t it?’
That wasn’t the reaction Evie had expected but before she could say more, Jessie came and stood beside her.
